Hello Kirill,

I found this in the TFD:

cap:

percussion cap.
A thin metal cap containing an explosive substance, such as fulminate of mercury, that explodes on being struck.

The usage of the definition does not seem to be restricted to a toy gun.

It just means a very good table.

Would this meaning of the word "choice" work with any other noun?


Yes. It is simply an adjective. I brought another example of its use from TFD here- "Choice peaches".

Choice as an adjective

***please note that I have hijacked it from pjharvey and vkhu's conversation. ^-^
